The purpose of this page is two-fold;
- One, to let you remember some of those odd games we used to play and bring a smile to
- Two, to try to catalog a fascinating piece of oral tradition, and make sure none of these games are ever lost forever.
There are hundreds of these games, and no one person has played them all. Plus there are undoubtedly hundreds more variations depending on where you grew up. When you think of an un-listed game, please let us know. (Details at the bottom of this page).
